Developing Institutional Mechanisms to Deliver Action and Engage Stakeholders – Sharing Good Practices between Finland and Colombia on the Implementation of the Agenda 2030
Finland and Colombia are among the first voluntary countries to report at the HLPF 2016 on their plans, mechanisms and measures to implement the 2030 Agenda. Both countries have some institutional mechanisms already in place for its effective implementation, yet the universal and transformative agenda sets new challenges for capacity building, ensuring coherence and coordination and inclusive participation leading to effective delivery of action at all levels.

Finland and Colombia have been cooperating at the political and expert levels since 2015 in order to share good practices and facilitate mutual learning on the national implementation of 2030 Agenda. The cooperation lead to a joint workshop which was organized in June 2016 in Bogotá, Colombia, with a focus on building institutional capacity, creating mechanisms to engage the private sector and the civil society, and integration of the SDGs into the national plans and public policies.
